Low-fat Stir-fried Vegetable Spaghetti | Vegan/Vegetarian Recipe. Have I ever mentioned that Boyfriendlovlie is quite a great cook? After blogging for so long, I am quite surprised that I have never blogged about and praised Boyfriendlovlie’s culinary skills. Mind you though, when we first met, more than a decade ago, he could barely even cut vegetables, let alone cooking. I remember his first attempt, which was way back during our pre-vegan days, at trying to cook me something. He made a big fry-up with meat burgers, sausages and potato chips. At that time he really thought he was going to impress me. Bless him. Quite candidly, I must admit that a spaghetti stir-fry is one dish that he masters better than I do. For now, let’s just sit back and enjoy this cooking demo of a low-fat Stir-fried Vegetable Spaghetti from my personal Chef at home (aka Boyfriendlovlie). Ingredients (serves 2) Bring a large pan of water to boil. So, I do hope you’ve enjoy this recipe. Stir-fried Vegetable Spaghetti | Vegan/Vegetarian Recipe Recipe type: Main Dish Cuisine: Fusion.

Why? Well, you can now add roasted cauliflower to my list of strange-but-true late winter food cravings. Weird, I know. Cauliflower has never been high on my list of comfort food vegetables, but for some reason I just couldn’t get the idea of a creamy roasted cauliflower recipe out of my mind. I may have just lost half of you, but hear me out; if you’ve never been a fan of cauliflower (or broccoli) this just might be the recipe that changes your mind.

To make this simple dish a meal, I roasted some chickpeas to go along with it.

Directions: Big Comfy Sweet Potato. Comfort food is different for all of us. For some, it’s a big bowl of macaroni and cheese, for others, it’s ice cream and chocolate sauce. Me? Sweet potatoes. For real. There is something so soothing and grounding about digging into one fresh out of the oven, loading it up with ghee, salt and cracked black pepper. It’s a simple dinner that saw me through my student years when I was living on a budget, held my hand when I dropped everything and moved across the world to Copenhagen, and continues to show me the love even now. Sweet potatoes are kind of like that favourite, threadbare white t-shirt, or the song I could listen to a thousand times without ever getting sick of it.

Method: In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, nutmeg and salt and stir to thoroughly combine. Add flour and gently work into potato mixture until it is no longer sticky and holds together. You may need to add a little more flour. Divide mixture into 4 pieces. On a well-floured work surface and using floured hands, gently roll each piece into a long rope about 1/2-inch thick. Cut each into 1-inch pieces. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. *If you’re making a larger batch, extra gnocchi can be dusted with flour and frozen in a single layer on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet at this point. You're Going to Need a Bigger Bowl.

Photo These hearty vegetarian meals in a bowl (or on a plate) are inspired by the Korean dish bibimbap. I call them “Big Bowls” because they are also inspired by a popular food truck I’ve eaten at, in Portland, Ore., whose only offering is called Whole Bowl, and is a comforting bowl of brown rice, with black beans, salsa, avocado and queso blanco. The long line of people I observed at this truck confirmed for me the fact that a simple, satisfying meal with grain, protein and terrific vegetables can be worth standing in line for. Each dish this week consists of a combination of a whole grain and vegetable preparation, with protein in the form of tofu, beans or cheese.

Sometimes the vegetables are as simple as cabbage kimchi, which I buy at Korean markets or at Trader Joe’s, accompanied by roasted red peppers and a delicious marinated, miso-glazed oven-baked tofu.

Portia and Ellen's Vegan Red Beans and Rice. Kimchi Fried Rice recipe on Food52. Author Notes: If you’re not yet sure about kimchi (Korean spicy fermented cabbage), this dish could be just the right gateway drug for you. Once sautéed, kimchi loses some of its pungent harshness, but answers back with an addictive, tangy-spicy warmth that deepens with a little time spent sizzling. Kimchi is so flavorful, it makes the perfect fried rice base. No need to mix in egg or smother it with soy sauce. You could probably dispense with every other ingredient; all you really need is kimchi, rice, and heat. It would still taste so good. This recipe has a little more than that going for it, though. I based it off a recipe I found in a discount Japanese cookbook, of all places (from a series that a friend and I have dubbed "bookazines"), and modified it to be more like dishes I’ve enjoyed in restaurants in Korea.

For the fried rice in the photo, I opted for shrimp, but I’ve also made it with chicken before (and pork would work, too). Serves 4 Ingredients Optional Ingredients. Macaroni Peas recipe on Food52.

One of our favorite stops on our trip around Japan was to a restaurant where the owner grew his own wheat to make udon.

So, for my first recipe from the road, I wanted to do a non traditional take on the dish. I don’t make it exactly like they do in Japan (since we aren’t using actual udon flour, which is very high in gluton). And on top of the noodles being non traditional — so is the sauce. Udon is served cold in the summer and hot in the winter. Usually it is served with dashi, mirin and soy sauce. Udon noodles are actually quite difficult to make. Udon noodles: 2 cups flour (plus 2 Tablespoons if needed)2/3 cup warm water1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt Sauce: 1 tablespoon butter1 tablespoon red miso1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese1 teaspoon shaved bottarga (optional) Sift the flour into a bowl. With a large rolling pin, roll the dough out onto a big table. Cook the noodles in boiling water for 8 minutes.

What I love most about veggie burgers is their versatility. The only downside to veggie burgers is that there's a learning curve involved. 1.
